Boulder HS 
Pirates (2065)

Coach: John Whitehead - 1st season

Returning starters: 5  
2021 Record: 3-12

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Dylan Pyle -
Willamette Univ.,  Jackson Woolwine - Colorado School of Mines

Players to watch: None committed - Anders Persson (SR) RHP, Danny Balderas-Lujan (SR) 3B/RHP, Derek Woolwine (SR) 1B, Ryan Sunderland (SR) SS 

2022 Outlook: New head coach John Whitehead arrives in Boulder after a short stint as the Arvada West head baseball coach. He will take over a team that went 3-12 last season with 1 win in league play.  Whitehead’s expectation is to compete every pitch of every out, in every game. The Panthers realize they have their work cut out for them this season but are excited about the challenge ahead. A senior class that includes Derek Woolwine (SR) and Anders Persson (SR) will lead the way and are followed by a handful of juniors and sophomores that plan to help right the ship in Boulder.

Broomfield HS 
Eagles (1591)

Coach: Kale Gilmore - 1st season

Returning starters: 6
2021 Record: 15-5

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Aaron Brakel -
Univ. of Sioux Falls, Caden English - CSU Pueblo Univ., Devon De Vera - Chandler Gilbert JC, Justin Spencer - Oklahoma Christian Univ., Tommy Valdes - Highland JC

Players to watch: None committed - Aiden Billingsly (SR) OF, Camden Ross (SR) C, Garrett Klein (SR) P, Gavin Speirs (SR) INF, Ryan Anderson (SR) 1B/OF, Cole LaCrue (JR) OF/P, Noah Scott (JR) INF/P, Jacob Rice (JR) P, Dane Most (SO) INF/P

2022 Outlook: The Eagles and 1st year coach Kale Gilmore will lean on a veteran team that returns 6 starters, including 4 starting pitchers. Garrett Klein (SR) is back to lead the way on the mound after recoring 41 IP and 39 K’s a year ago. Noah Scott (JR) and Jacob Rice (JR) also return and have high expectations to contribute on the bump as well. Offensively Camden Ross (SR) and Ryan Anderson (SR) both are extra base hit machines, leading the team in doubles and HR’s in 2022. With a strong pitching staff and positive senior leadership Coach Gilmore thinks the Eagles will be in the hunt for league and could make a run in the postseason.

Fairview HS 
Knights (2228)

Coach: David Castillo - 6th season

Returning starters: 6   
2021 Record: 17-5

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Adam Moser -
Eastern Oklahoma Univ., Dillon Souvignier - John Hopkins Univ., Greysen Carter - Vanderbilt Univ., J.D. Jones - Univ. of Miami

Players to watch: None committed - Gabe Springer (SR) SS

2022 Outlook: After a strong 2021 season that saw the Knights losing in the final 4 Fairview is looking to rebuild. A large senior class exits including Vanderbilt freshman RHP Greysen Carter. Gabe Springer (SR) will lead the Knights at the plate and in the locker room. Springer had a strong 2021 season hitting just under .400 with 5 HR’s. The pitching staff will be a question mark and Coach Castillo not only expects a handful of guys to step up and help on the mound but also support Springer in the lineup offensively.

Fort Collins HS 
Lambkins (1852)

Coach: Marc Wagner - 9th season

Returning starters: 5   
2021 Record: 16-6

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Jackson Bigge -
McCook JC, Jonah Meadows - McCook JC, Luke Guest - Neosho County JC, Will Togher - Colorado Northeastern JC

Players to watch: None committed - Brendan Fry (SR) CF, Teagan Crow (SR) OF, Andy Fordyce (JR) SS, Sean Togher (SO) C

2022 Outlook: The Lambkins had an outstanding 2021 season, finishing with 16 total wins and a final 4 appearance. However, much of the pitching staff has moved on so expect Fort Collins to lean heavily on Brendan Fry’s (SR)performance and leadership this season. Fry will play a role both at the plate and on the mound while also a defensive mainstay in CF. Teagan Crow (SR) and Sean Togher (SO) will help solidify the middle of the lineup but the jury is still out on on the remainder of the pitching staff. Still, even with uncertainty in the lineup Coach Wagner still believes the Lambkins will be a playoff team in 2022.

Fossil Ridge HS 
Sabercats (1994)

Coach: Chris Moddelmog - 1st season

Returning starters: 5   
2021 Record: 10-7

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Ridge Bowolick -
Cornell College, Tim Abercrombie - Friends Univ.

Players to watch: None committed - Tyler Kubat (JR) RHP, Sam Pease (JR) C

2022 Outlook: The Sabercats have new leadership as Coach Moddelmog takes over a program that advanced to the  playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in school history and plan to be back again in 2022. They have 5 starters returning to a lineup that will be led by Sam Pease (JR) and Johnny Reed (SR). Both led the team in most offensive categories a year ago. The loss of starting pitcher Tim Abercrombie to graduation will hurt but expect Tyler Kubat (JR) and Zander Reese (SR) to get plenty opportunities to fill his shoes.

Monarch HS 
Coyotes (1714)

Coach: James Thompson - 1st season

Returning starters: 1   
2021 Record: 4-12

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Santiago Marquez -
Cuesta JC

Players to watch: None committed - Row Tucker (SO) SS/RHP

2022 Outlook: First year Coach James Thompson will inherit a squad that returns 1 varsity starter and finished 10th in league a year ago. The returning players bring a total of 14.2 varsity innings pitched and around 100 at bats combined. Coach Thompson plans to have 3 main goals: Development of their younger players, a winning record, and make the district playoffs. They will focus on one day at a time and competing with the best of their abilities. The lone returning starter is shortstop Row Tucker (SO) who started last season as a freshman.

Horizon HS 
Hawks (2037)

Coach: Ralph Garcia - 19th season

Returning starters: 9   
2021 Record: 8-7-1

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Brady Wiesinger -
Oklahoma Christian Univ., Chase Kascak - Trinidad State JC, Grant Gabbert - Miles JC

Players to watch: None committed - Artie Ramirez (SR) IF, Blake Benallo (SR) RHP, Colin Zancanella (SR) RHP, Cole Toureau (SR) RHP, Danny Sullivan (SR) OF, Eli Schaeffer (SR) UTIL, Gabe Rodriguez (SR) RHP, Jake Olguin-Pacheco (SR) OF/LHP, Justin Gines (SR) C/3B/RHP, Zeke Minic (SR) C/1B 

2022 Outlook: Horizon hasn’t won a league championship since 2008 and has struggled to get past the 2nd round of the playoffs over the last 10 years but with 10 seniors returning from last spring the expectations are high. Pitching and defense will be the team backbone with the majority of arms back and all 8 position players. Jake Olguin-Pacheco (SR) is a 4 year varsity starter and will be a major contributor on defense, at the plate and on the mound. Justin Gines (SR) was 1st team all-conference as a junior and arguably one of the best hitters in the league. With a solid defense and stable full of arms the Hawks season will ride on how well they swing the stick. If they produce offensively this could be a special year for Coach Garcia and his squad.

Legacy HS 
Lightning  (2363)

Coach: Ty Giordano - 14th season

Returning starters: 7   
2021 Record: 13-7

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Cale Claridge -
Univ. of Colorado Colorado Springs(UCCS), Connor Murray - Adams State Univ., Eric Lerma - Hibbings JC, MaCully Sehr - Augustana College

Players to watch: None committed - Blake Roberts (SR) OF, Clayton Shuck (SR) C, Kieran Gaffney (SR) 3B/RHP, Landon Sehr (SR) OF/LHP, Peyton Malecha (SR) INF/RHP, Brandon Sanchez (JR) INF/RHP, Marcus Romero (JR) OF/RHP

2022 Outlook: Giordano’s squad is a playoff regular out of the Front Range and if they are going to make their 5th straight playoff appearance, they will need to get it done behind the left arm of Landon Sehr (SR) and a strong defense. L. Sehr was a work horse on the mound a year ago with 37 IP, a 3.35 ERA and 38K’s. Kieran Gaffney (SR) logged 14 IP in 2021 and will be asked to fill the number 2 spot in the rotation. Offensively, the Lightning return the majority of their lineup that only hit .274 last season with 4 HR’s. While Legacy has proven to be a regular playoff team and advanced to the Great 8 in 2021 they have not won a league championship in school history. With their winning tradition and experience Giordano is hoping to change that in 2022 but it could be determined by the teams offensive production.

Loveland HS 
Red Wolves (1631)

Coach: Greg Brock - 6th season

Returning starters: 6   
2021 Record: 8-8

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Braiden McCaan -
William Penn Univ., Joe Killian - Santa Barbara JC

Players to watch: None committed - Garrett Harstad (JR) SS/P, Hudson Voggesser  (JR)  OF/OF

2022 Outlook: The Red Wolves missed making the playoffs in 2021 finishing 7th in the always competitive Front Range League. For Loveland to have a shot at returning to post-season play in 2022 they will rely on a pitching staff that returns 4 top arms and COBSBL Top 25 Junior Garrett Harstad (JR). Shortstop G. Harstad led the team with a .564 average, stole 10 bases and also logged 16 IP on the mound as a sophomore. He will not be able to do it alone as the Red Wolves also return Walker Emmons (JR) and Hudson Voggesser (SR) to the pitching staff. As pitching will be the teams strength the question mark for this group is how well they will hit the baseball. G. Harstad will be a threat in the middle of the lineup but who will step up and provide help in the lineup.

Mountain Range HS 
Mustangs (2000)

Coach: DJ Yeager - 8th season

Returning starters: 5   
2021 Record: 5-11

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Chris Weins -
Morningside Univ., Mikey Acierno - McCook JC

Players to watch: None committed - Aiden Johnson (SR) RHP, Jace Valdez (SR) INF, Mark Cusick (SR) OF, Victor Rodriguez (JR) INF

2022 Outlook: The Mustangs were in the State Final 4 as recent as 2018 but failed to make the playoffs last season. The goal in 2022 is to make the playoffs but to do that the team needs leadership from all of their seniors and returning varsity players. They will also need to improve offensively after hitting .214 as a team in 2021. Jace Valdez (SR) anchors an infield that is strong defensively with quality athletes that should be the teams strength. However, Mtn. Range will need to see growth in the pitching staff with quality innings from both returning players Aiden Johnson (SR) and J. Valdez.

Poudre HS 
Impalas (1825)

Coach: Joe Fontana - 1st season

Returning starters: 4   
2021 Record: 2-14

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
None

Players to watch: Conor Donahue (SR) Dylan McCall (SR) RHP/1B - committed to Indian Hills JC

2022 Outlook: Poudre will have a new coach in 2022 after the departure of Luke Cheever. New Coach Joe Fontana will have some work ahead of him with only 4 starters returning from a team that went 2-14. Dylan McCall (SR) and Conor Donahue (SR) had minimal innings on the mound last season but will be asked to carry the workload for the pitching staff. Offensively the Impalas struggled in 2021 and will rely on a young group with minimal varsity expereince to provide the punch in the lineup. Luke Olson (JR) returns with the most experience and should improve after a year under his belt.  

 

Rocky Mtn. HS 
Lobos (1970)

Coach: Scott Bullock - 20th season

Returning starters: 4   
2021 Record: 9-8

2021 Srs playing at the next level:
Antwone Suarez -
Northeastern Colorado JC, Joel Anderson - Scottsdale JC, Seth Beals -Cornell College

Players to watch: Bryson Medrano (SR) INF/C, - committed to Scottsdale JC, Evan Wangnild (SR) OF, Will Vasseur (SR) INF/RHP - committed to Navarro JC, Brady Hall (JR) INF/RHP, Nate Eliason (JR) INF

2022 Outlook: With 12 Final 8 appearances, 8 Final 4 appearances and 6  State Titles at Rocky Mtn. the expectations are always the same, compete for a league championship and make a run in the playoffs. The Lobos return COBSBL Top 25 player, shortstop and 4 year starter Will Vasseur (SR) along with RHP Brady Hall (JR). W. Vasseur will be a weapon in the lineup along with Bryson Medrano (SR), Nate Eliason (JR) and Evan Wangnild (SR) all hitting at the top of the lineup. Returning ace B. Hall will see the most innings on the mound while W. Vasseur is penciled as the number 2. After that, the Lobos are uncertain who will help on the mound and will play a role in the 2022 teams success.
